2018 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Philip Larsen in 2018. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.

Larsen (upper body) is no longer listed on IR, per the NHL's official media site.
It's been 23 games since Larsen sustained that upper-body ailment, and projects that he'll sit this next one out despite being activated. The Canucks will go right back to work Thursday for a contest against the Coyotes in Arizona, so there's still a chance that Larsen factors into a match ahead of the All-Star break. Vancouver fans and deep-league fantasy owners will hope No. 63 can stay on the ice for a sustained period of time, as he has the potential to mature into a fine two-way defenseman -- plus he's averaging 3:07 of power-play ice time this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Larsen split his time between the NHL and AHL last season, and may end up riding the same roller coaster this season. His biggest value to the team is as a veteran presence, but he does offer a little offensive upside … if he can stay out of the press box. That's easier said than done for the veteran of five seasons, but only 125 NHL games -- he seems to have a hard time sticking on NHL rosters.
Larsen was acquired from the Stars in the Shawn Horcoff trade. In his last 87 games for Dallas, he has five goals and 11 assists. He does have some offensive upside, but it seems the Oilers have a lot of these kinds of players on their roster. Maybe if they throw enough mud against the wall, something will stick. Larsen could be the guy to stick, but is unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact this year.
Larsen was called up from the minors early last season due to Alex Goligoski's hand injury and was a constant presence on Dallas' blueline for the remainder of the season (save for a few minor injuries). He showed surprisingly good play in his own zone and his offensive game should being to emerge as he matures. He's a decent bet to approach 25 points in a full season.
Larsen's first full season in North American was a success, as he chipped in some offense (4-17 in 54 games with Dallas' AHL team) and saw brief time in the NHL for the second straight year. The Stars will likely want him to play most of the season in the AHL, further refining his game and filling out physically, but there's a nice future ahead for the puck-moving blueliner.
Larsen picked up an assist in two games at the NHL level last year, but spent most of the season against older competition in the Sweedish Elite League. He gets high marks for his hockey sense, though it hasn't translated into big offensive totals from the blue line.
